Ukraine's capital was struck by multiple missiles for the first time in months Monday, and several other Ukrainian cities were hit in what Russian President Vladimir Putin called retaliation for an explosion on a major Russian-built bridge.

At least 14 civilians were killed and nearly 100 were wounded in the strikes, Ukraine Emergency Service reported. Missiles hit civilian infrastructure in the center of Kyiv during morning rush hour. Among other major cities battered by the strikes were Dnipro in the center of the country, Lyiv in the west, Kharkiv in the northeast and Zaporizhizia in the south.

Ukraine's military said Russia launched 84 missiles, mostly from drones, and 56 of them were shot down by Ukrainian air defenses. Critical infrastructure, mostly energy supply, was also hit in eight regions, authorities said.

  1. Russians were serenading while sheltering from Ukrainian bombing in Donbas, but nobody recorded that event.
    God bless the world.

  2. In the dictionary when people look for ‘ comedian ‘ respond should automatically be ; Zelensky! Zelensky was put in there by the west to entertain the Russians, ultimately making them laugh .

  3. Made me cry, their resiliency, in North America we’ve never known any kind of persecution like this.

    1. Yes, inspiring the resilience of the Ukrainians… But your comment on Persecution in North America is waaaay off…You might want to go back to History class…

  4. I live in China. Everything is miserable here, but no one dares to complain.
    Seriously if there is next life, I wish to be born in any other country, except China.

  5. I hope they can almost imagine the horror which the people of Donbass went through for eight long years.
    And they are still suffering.

  6. This reminds me of photos of British civilians taking cover from German strategic bombing in 1940. They’re all just casually lounging about, staying calm.
